Chapter Summary

This chapter considers Liebermann's editorial practice with respect to Cambridge, Corpus Christi College 383, a major post-Conquest collection of Anglo-Saxon legislation and normative texts. It argues that the manuscript context of the laws in CCCC 383 is marginalised by Liebermann, and that there is a significant discrepancy between the changing contexts of the manuscript evidenced in the mise-en-page and the static portrayal of the law-code in his edition. The chapter presents detailed overviews of both CCCC 383 and Liebermann's Gesetze. CCCC 383 is a collection of twenty-five Anglo-Saxon law-codes and related texts, sometimes described as a "legal encyclopaedia". Liebermann's Gesetze is a monumental discussion of Anglo-Saxon law. The Old English version of I ÆThelred copied in CCCC 383 runs for 63 lines from fol. 11r, L. 10 to its conclusion on fol. 12r, L. 20.
